bottle courtesy of freshbeercesar, thank you so much! had this next to pappy dark lord, and was very surprised to find this beer more cloying. a very boozy and thick stout, has the uberviscous body as usual, all the spices and all the barrel are there, slightly distracted by the palate. this is one of the rare cases where i am gonna give a slight edge to the base beer it think. very slight. looking forward to trying the other variations and seeing if its across the board or just with this particular treatment. world class stuff, hope i get to try this one in about a year or so!
750 mL bottle. Unknown original review date, but sometime before June 26, 2012.
Jet black with a chocolate head. Inky and glass staining as always.
Whiskey is very dominant on the nose. All the flavors of whiskey, chocolate, and peppers come through in one whiff. They blend seamlessly into a great nose.
Tastes of whiskey up front, as the aroma would indicate. It’s a different aroma from Bourbon, which I didn’t quite expect. I thought I wouldn’t be able to discern a Whiskey barrel from a Bourbon barrel in a big beer like this. It’s less intense than a Bourbon barrel and allows the beer to come through. Chocolate and peppers not as well blended as in the aroma. The whiskey flavor is very sharp, especially in the finish.
Very thick. Seems to have retained its body better than Virgin Oak did. Very heavy and tough to drink. A sipper, I suppose.
Wonderful flavors, but it’s so big. The complexities of Hunahpu are a little lost from the barrel, but the barrel does well to accommodate.

Black of color with a brown head. An aroma of vanilla, spice, dark chocolate, liqurice and coconut. A flavor of vanilla, spice, chili, dark chocolate, weak coffee and an oily texture. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle, lots of thanks to BoBoChamp for giving me the opportunity to try this one!
APPEARANCE: pitch black beer, no head. Very sticky beer.
TASTE: whiskey, some spices, quite sweet, chocolate, mocha.
TASTE: whiskey again, some chili there as well, coffee bitterness, sweetness as the regular Hunahpu. For me, this was a beer in perfect balance! Nice alcohol warming feeling.
